"This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image shows the edge-on profile of the slender spiral galaxy NGC 5775, which is surrounded by a halo of gas that astronomers suspect is kicked up by star explosions like a galaxy-size fountain. A photo from the Hubble Space Telescope has revealed what scientists have called a veritable galactic "fountain of youth," one that would turn the fictional pirate captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean films green with envy. Journeying to the mythic Fountain of Youth is Sparrow's goal in in the adventure film franchise, "Pirates of the Cari... more »

“At first we thought it would be really cool if only your "positive" thoughts became the things and events of your life. But then we couldn't think of any things or events that wouldn't eventually be considered "positive," so we decided to just leave you "turned on" all the time. Not that you can't choose what you think. You can and you do.” "B-z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z..." The Universe “Thoughts become things... choose the good ones!” - www.tut.com

“Yes, reopening the investigation looks bad for Hillary, but…”

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 2 hours ago
Folk are celebrating that with the FBI reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, the fat lady is about to sing for her in an enticing orange-coloured jump suit. Not so fast. Note that James Comey’s announcement was made late on a Friday afternoon, precisely at the time when news is best buried. And as a commentator with a few smarts and a bucket of very cold water points out: *You guys have to understand what is going on. In the course of the investigation into Anthony Weiner's sexting, the FBI came across emails that are incriminating to Hillary. All of ... more »

Florida Already Has The 2 Worst Senate Candidates in America-- Now Insert Trump Into The Mix

I don't think there's a state offering its voters a worse choice than the two losers running for the Senate in Florida, Republican doofus Marco Rubio and the far stupider "ex"-Republican/fake Democrat Patrick Murphy. These arterially two garbage candidates deserving of no votes at all. It's races like this one that make people yearn for a "none-of-the-above" choice on the ballot. The RealClearPolitics polling average shows Hillary leading Trump in Florida by a narrow 1.6%. The senate average there shows Rubio beating Murphy by a more formidable 3.6%.

The Poet: Rainer Maria Rilke, "All Will Come Again"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 4 hours ago
*"All Will Come Again"* by Rainer Maria Rilke "All will come again into its strength: the fields undivided, the waters undammed, the trees towering and the walls built low. And in the valleys, people as strong and varied as the land. And no churches where God is imprisoned and lamented like a trapped and wounded animal. The houses welcoming all who knock and a sense of boundless offering in all relations, and in you and me. No yearning for an afterlife, no looking beyond, no belittling of death, but only longing for what belongs to us and serving earth, lest we remain unused."

Monsef "very very sorry" she cannot advocate for PR

Alison at Creekside - 4 hours ago
Tweets like the above appeared today following Minister Monsef's Q&A at her Victoria BC electoral reform public consultation. Her remarks echo those of Justin Trudeau earlier this week, giving rise to the fear that the Liberals are backtracking on implementing electoral reform and their campaign promise that 2011 would be "the last election under FPtP". I've transcribed her responses to the two relevant questions from the audience in full below so you can judge for yourself.

“For this is what we do. Put one foot forward and then the other. Lift our eyes to the snarl and smile of the world once more. Think. Act. Feel. Add our little consequence to the tides of good and evil that flood and drain the world. Drag our shadowed crosses into the hope of another night. Push our brave hearts into the promise of a new day. With love: the passionate search for truth other than our own. With longing: the pure, ineffable yearning to be saved. For so long as fate keeps waiting, we live on. God help us. God forgive us. We live on.” - Gregory David Roberts, “Shantaram”

Israeli Deputy Minister: Italy Quakes Retribution For Anti Jewish Vote

Edmondo Burr at Your News Wire - 6 hours ago
The two earthquakes that hit Italy Wednesday were “retribution” for the country’s support of a UNESCO resolution that disregards the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, according to Israeli Deputy Minister Ayoob Kara (Likud). Israel suspended its ties with the UN cultural agency after it adopted a draft resolution this month, that Israel says denies Judaism’s connections to the religion’s holiest sites. The deputy minister, who was in Italy when the earthquakes struck, ascribed the natural disasters to divine will. RT.com reports: “I’m sure that the earthquake hap... more »

Can we apply SAT-style textual analysis to this North Carolina "undecided" voter's indecision?

KenInNY at DownWithTyranny! - 7 hours ago
*by Ken* First off, I should specify that it has been many, many years since I took the SAT, and I understand that the test has undergone all sorts of changes since dinosaurs walked the earth. Also, while I did pretty well on the "verbal" portion of the test, I consistently did better on the math portion. (That's all there was in those antediluvian days.) This was surprising, in that I thought of myself, and was generally thought of, as more of a "word person" than, certainly, a math one. Part of my problem may have been the tiresome and unproductive habit of wasting time and tho... more »

Take Your Flu Shots And Stick Them Up Your Ass

Baxter Dmitry at Your News Wire - 7 hours ago
Flu shots are the greatest medical fraud in history. They contain formaldehyde and mercury – two powerful neurotoxins – and the vaccine industry even admits that laboratory tests prove the popular jab does not work. Why is a toxic, medical hoax, backed by nothing but voodoo faith-based dogma and clever marketing, pushed on the whole population every year? Vaccines are the one medicine where no scientific evidence of safety or efficacy is required by anyone: not the FDA, not the CDC and not the media. Congress even passed a law protecting the vaccine industry with absolute legal im... more »

As the (now famous) video of the incident shows, the driver jumped out of the cab, telling me to stop.

Mosul Campaign Day Eleven, Oct 27, 2016

Joel Wing at MUSINGS ON IRAQ - 13 hours ago
The Mosul operation continued to go in fits and spurts. With the first phase of the operation coming to an end, there are days when there are fewer advances, which was what happened on October 27. On the other side, IS was building its defenses while exploiting and murdering civilians. The U.S. also tried to mediate between Iraq and Turkey once more, and there was more displacement from the fighting. From October 26-27, the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) and Peshmerga freed over two dozen towns. On October 26 twenty towns were declared liberated, but seven of them were said to have ... more »

The Republican Wing Of The Democratic Party Rides Again

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
How do you know which congressional candidates-- often without records, or without easily accessible records-- you should vote for? Many people just base it on party ID. People who identify with the Democratic Party, for whatever reason, vote for Democratic candidates and people who identify with the Republican Party, vote for Republican candidates. I bet that accounts for upwards of 70% of the electorate. But on both sides of the political divide, there has been a realization dawning that not all Democrats (and, to a lesser extent, not all Republicans) are the same. There's this... more »
